I have to be honest. I wasn't really interested in reading "10 Days Without" by Daniel Ryan Day. I didn't know anything about it and I didn't know what to expect. In fact, the only thing that was of interest to me was the fact that Day graduated from Appalachian State (my college school) and seemed to be right around my age.
I am so glad I read this book. Day set out to challenge himself and others to become intentional Christians. He sacrificed different things for 10 days and blogged about the challenge. He gave up things such as shoes, his legs, and even human touch. Meanwhile, he created fundraisers and brought attention to great organizations such as International Justice Mission, prisons, domestic violence shelters, and Joni and Friends among others. Every sacrifice he made was intentional and really propelled people towards noticing these organizations and the people they service.
Check out his blog here and the 10 Days Without website here. This is an awesome book to read and it's really motivational. I guarantee you it will start you thinking. Of course, his whole point is that he wants us to stop thinking and start acting! I highly recommend all Christians read this book, and then go out and do something.
Thank you to Waterbrook Multonah for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
